Halide is arguably the most refined and powerful iPhone camera app for photography. It strikes a balance with its attractive appearance and useful controls that allow anyone to do more with the optics of today’s iPhones.

Of course, iPhones aren’t the only Apple devices with incredible camera systems. Modern iPads often match the iPhone in most camera specs, and today Halide is celebrating that with the very first version of Halide for the iPad.

In typical Halide fashion, the new camera app for iPadOS respects the tablet form factor with an all-new user interface designed for large screens. Halide for iPad isn’t just an iPhone app port. It features a personalized iPad user interface with familiar interaction methods that take into account the placement of the thumb on the big screen.

Halide introduces a new smart Pro View option on iPad that aims to overcome the difficulty of taking great photos with the tablet’s camera system. Pro View takes advantage of the larger screen without filling it to the edge so you can always assess the composition of the image. Another advantage of this approach is that it prevents the viewfinder from being obscured by on-screen controls. Prefer to use the full screen as a viewfinder? It’s still possible too.

Halide for iPad also takes usability into account so that you can assign the entire UI to the left or right of the screen. The useful iPhone Tech Reading feature is coming to the iPad so you can dive deep into your tablet’s camera system, and a new space gray version of the icon is now available in the latest update.

To try Halide for iPadOS because it debuts just in time for the launch of the new iPad Pro 2021!
